June is one of the few months that are perfect for visiting Europe. If you want to head to the Mediterranean, it’s not yet too crowded or too hot, whereas the Northern regions offer pleasant weather. And although it’s still technically spring, the temperatures are summery, and many large cities see peak travel season just about now.
But where should you go if you have yoga on your mind, too?
We’ve done the legwork for you and searched for the top yoga destinations to visit in June that our customers have inquired about in the past three months, where you can book retreats of all kinds and if you’re lucky, you might even find a cheap flight.
